Santiago de Chile

The capital of Chile, Santiago seemed to us much smaller than Buenos Aires.
Might affect though that our accommodation was located in a quiet residential area
instead of the city centre.
In Santiago it’s easy to move around by foot and by metro.
One of the sights is bohemian, colorful area called Barrio Bellavista.
There you can find nice wall paintings, unfortunately many are covered with less nice graffiti. We drove up with funicular and down with teleferic to San Cristobal hill, from where you can get a good view over the city.
As we had five days is Santiago, also took advantage of the fast (been a while!)internet connection and spent lots of time in the hostels garden under fruit trees.
Got to eat fresh grapes and discussed until late about rivalry between France and Italy, living in London and international relationships with a French and an Italian travelers.
